The work of a museum is to conserve artifacts of artistic, historical, cultural, or scientific value for the benefit of future generations. Both beautiful and educational, the best museums boast sleek interior designs, priceless artifacts and a welcoming space designed to explore. Thus, the work of the museum floor is to complement each exhibit, creating an overall aesthetic that brings everything together.
The best flooring in museum exhibits has epoxy coatings or other resinous floors that are both versatile and long-lasting. Some of the characteristics of high quality epoxy flooring options available are as follows:
- Waterproof—Epoxy floor coatings seep far into all the pores, nooks, and crannies of the cement underneath, creating an impermeable bond. A smooth surface without any nicks or leaks generally prevents water from penetrating – an ideal option for those rainy day museum visits. For extra safeguards in multi-level facilities, elastomeric waterproofing underlayment is available.
- High durability—a floor that can withstand foot traffic as well as the weight of certain exhibits, such as stone sculptures, is critical for a well-functioning museum. Our high compressive-strength floors are ideal.
- Safety—Epoxy and other decorative resinous flooring is non-slip, even for those unsteady on their feet. A dense, safe surface, epoxy finishes encourage museum visitors to spend hours exploring.
